Biography

I have been practicing intellectual property law for over 40 years and established my present offices in Leesburg, Virginia in 2003.

Originally, I began my career in the United States Patent Office after earning a degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin. I was an examiner in chemical technologies at the Patent Office and served as a law clerk to the Board of Appeals while attending law school in the evenings. After the Patent Office, I did a brief stint in private practice before becoming in-house counsel for General Foods Corporation as Senior Patent Counsel and Assistant Divisional General Counsel. I then opened my own office before merging with and becoming a partner at St. Onge, Steward, Johnston & Reens in Stamford, Connecticut.

My current practice is exclusively focused on intellectual property law. I maintain a full prosecution docket and actively participate in complex strategic and contested matters. I regularly aid clients in licensing and other technology transfer agreements. Trademarks are more complex than appear on their face, and I advise in all aspects of this phase of intellectual property. Patents are no less complex, and I regularly analyze patents and provide complete opinions relating to infringement, validity, overall patent strategy.

My practice extends worldwide and involves an extensive network of associate attorneys developed over many years.

While in Connecticut, I was president of the Connecticut Patent Law Association and worked with leading lawyers for over ten years putting together a popular and widely-attended Joint Seminar produced by Connecticut and the New York, New Jersey and Philadelphia Intellectual Property Law Associations. He is also a past president of the Northern Virginia Patent Lawyers Club.
